Some things I learned that helped me heal...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

I learned that I could not do anything to change anyone else; I could only change myself and the way I acted. I learned that though my mother was incapable of love or caring, except as it related to her, that I was capable of forgiveness. I learned that true forgiveness must be unconditional; it cannot be attached to whether or not the person loves me. I learned that forgiveness does not mean that I must have a relationship with that person; rather, it is about letting go of any and all anger and hostility so that I could move forward in my life. And lastly, I learned that sometimes physical distance is necessary. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Darlene sure has given you, me and all her many visitors exceptional new insights into unconditional love.
